AROUND & ABOUT
While you're here, Offaly has a lot to offer.
Birr Castle Demense
Learn about the extraordinary achievements of the Parsons family who have a global reputation for their ground-breaking inventions and feats in the fields of science, engineering, photography, astronomy and botany. For over 400 years, this remarkable family has resided at the romantic and inspirational setting of Birr Castle Demesne that is now home to the 7th Earl and Countess of Rosse.
In the early 1840's, the Third Earl of Rosse designed and built the largest astronomical telescope in the world. With this telescope, he discovered the spiral nature of some of the galaxies and from 1845-1914, anyone wishing to witness this phenomenon had to come to Birr. The Rosse Telescope or the Leviathann is still a main feature on the grounds of Birr Castle today. Set on 120 acres of parklands and gardens, this castle demesne also boasts a rare collection of over 4000 trees and plants, wonderful wildlife, and peaceful walks along rivers, waterfalls and lake.
Slieve Bloom Mountains
The Slieve Bloom mountains, along with the Massif Central in France, are one of the oldest mountain ranges in Europe; they were once also the highest at 3,700m.
Weathering has reduced them to 527m, but whether you take on the long-distance Slieve Bloom Way or opt for one of the shorter looped trails, you'll be rewarded by spectacular views stretching across the midlands of Ireland, and on a clear cloud free day you can see the four highest points of each of Ireland's four provinces.
Bike or hike - these unspoilt and uncongested trails are truly one of Offaly's Hidden Gems.
This sixth century monastic site, located on the banks of the River Shannon is home to three high crosses, a cathedral, seven churches and two round towers.
This great monastery was founded in 548-9 by St. Ciarán Mac a tSaor (“son of the carpenter”), who studied under St. Finian at the famous Clonard Abbey in County Meath.
The strategic location of the monastery at a crossroads between the major east-west land route through the bogs of central Ireland and the River Shannon, helped it become a major centre of religion, learning, craftsmanship and trade by the 9th century.
Cruising on the Shannon
If you like the idea of setting your own course and choosing when and where to stop off and explore, then a cruising trip along the Shannon could be just the ticket.
Start your riverside adventure in Banagher and cruise on one of the finest natural inland waterways in Europe, as the unspoilt River Shannon meanders through beautiful countryside and past historic towns offering the best in Irish hospitality.
Lough Boora Parklands
Transformed from its previous incarnation as a commercial bog where peat was harvested to heat homes around the country, today Lough Boora Discovery Park is home to countless species of birds and wildlife, fish-filled lakes and a permanent exhibition of huge outdoor sculptures.
These sculptures give the park an other-worldly feel, created using the old industrial materials of the bog such as locomotives, rail-line and timber, all crafted into magnificent works of art.
